3. A rock at rest has weight 138 N. What is the weight of the rock when it is accelerating upward at 12 m/s2?
4. An astronaut's pack weighs 17.5 N when she is on earth, but only 3.24 N when she is on the surface of an asteroid. What is the acceleration due to gravity on this asteroid?
5. A large sphere has a mass of 175 kg and is suspended by a chain from the ceiling. The mass of the chain is 12.0 kg. What is the tension in the chain?
1.What does a 138N rock weigh if it is accelerating a)upward at 12 m/s^2 138N rock has a mass of 138/9.8 = 14.1 kg F=ma f = 14.1 kg x 12 m/s² = 169 N upwards, so the forces add, and net is 138+169 = 307 N 2=Best Answer:18=m9.81 m=1.835kg 3.49=1.835a a=1.902m/s^2 mass of pack = 1.835kg
last one is not asking for the mass is asking for the Force N
sorry sir i dont understand fully plz elaborate....which one you are talking about
is asking for the tension of the chain. in N
